The Atlanta Hawks take on the second presumptive Eastern Conference playoff team in as many days and, if anything, the challenge is more severe this time. That stems from the Washington Wizards being fully rested at home on Saturday night but there has been a bit of a healthy rivalry between the two division foes in recent years and this should be fun.

Stay tuned throughout the afternoon for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
